This game is a battle of the league’s emerging young talents. Both Trae Young and RJ Barrett are contrasting point guards.
Young is not your conventional point guard, as he is more of a shooting guard disguised as a point guard.
Barrett is turning into a classic point guard. His defense has also improved since the arrival of Maurice Harkless.
Young defensive play and that of his team leaves much to be desired. This game will, however, be decided on how the Knicks cope with the Hawks offense.
The Knicks will also have to try and match the Hawks offensive firepower that starts and ends with Young.
The solution to the Hawks offense needs to come from the physicality of Maurice Harkless, Julius Randle, and Reggie Bullock on defense.
In the last few games when the Hawks offense shows up they are hard to stop. However, when Trae Young is slowed down they are rather toothless and without direction.
In their last three losses, they were kept under 115 points. In their last three wins, they scored over 123 points.
So which Hawks offense shows up is what decides the game. Although young is not a pure point guard he still is a solid distributor of the ball.
The other issue the Hawks need to address is their ability to challenge the Knicks on the boards.
If they lose the rebounding battle, the Knicks will force them to take more outside shots.
John Collins has the ability to stretch the floor and shoot from mid-range but he and Young will require more scoring from the rest of the team.
New York Knicks
From a matchup perspective the Knicks have an advantage over the Hawks. With the inclusion of Maurice Harkless, they are creating a physical frontcourt.
This has slowly opened up the game for RJ Barrett. This gives him options to either take higher percentage shots or dishing it inside.
The Hawks are not very equipped in dealing with physical teams. Even their guards Young included play little to no defense.
If the Knicks control the boards especially offensively, they will be able to dictate how they attack the Hawks.
Although statistically they Knicks are not among the league’s best defense, they have gradually been improving with Harkless in the lineup.
This game could go either way but the Knicks are subtly improving on defense, and they match well against the Hawks to just edge them out.
